I'm partnering with LawDepot to bring you legal forms

I've begun a new venture that many of you will find handy; I've set up a new tab on this blog where readers can find legal forms they need. The forms are from LawDepot. Clicking on the link for a particular document will take you directly to that form, together with information and instructions.

I've listed individually some of the forms that you have asked me for most often, such as Power of Attorney. I've also included a link that will take you to LawDepot's general page so that you can also access forms for incorporation, running a business, pre-nuptial agreements, separation agreements, and much more.

I hope by adding this service, my blog will continue to be a useful resource for people looking for information about wills and estates. I've been asked many times for forms. I cannot recommend specific forms for individual readers, as I would have to discuss matters with you personally in some detail before doing so, but I hope providing this service will help fill the gap.

As always, I welcome feedback from you.

  1. how do LawDepots Wills compare to Wal-Mart's $99 Wills? Is legal advice a good idea?

    1. As a seasoned estate planner, I would love it if every person in the country sought professional advice and had excellent wills, powers of attorney, and health care directives drawn up.

      However, I know full well that is never going to happen. Some people are never going to see a lawyer about getting a will done, and there are lots of reasons for it. Some can't afford it, some think they don't need legal advice, and some just don't like lawyers or are intimidated by us.

      Forms from LawDepot, or from DIY books like the ones I write, are ideal for people who have a pretty good grasp on what they own, and what they need to do. If your affairs are simple, your documentation can also be simple.

      If there are complexities in your life or your assets, you should talk to a lawyer, an accountant, or a financial advisor, depending on what the complexity is. For example, if you have been married more than once, if you have a mentally challenged child, if you own a business, or you own assets outside of Canada, you really should get some advice.

      I can't comment on the quality of the Walmart wills, as the idea is brand new and I haven't seen or heard anything about the actual products yet. However, I don't know how much advice you're going to get from anyone for $99.

  2. This is a smart blog. I mean it. You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses.
